Souls on ice
I swear, I thought this was a joke when I saw it on World O'Crap, but apparently it's not. NRO's Deroy Murdock on frozen embryos (emphasis added):
Snowflakes Frozen Embryo Adoption Program, a Fullerton, California-based nonprofit, is a pioneer in finding loving homes for these Microscopic-Americans. Snowflakes--so named because each of these souls on ice is as unique as every snowflake--links infertile parents with frozen embryos whose characteristics appeal to particular pairs of moms and dads.
... Snowflakes is working with Rep. Joe Pitts (R., Pa.) to introduce House members to 17 young Americans between the ages of 3 months and 7 who once were frozen (in Gabriel Vest's case, for nine years). Previously deprived of the opportunity to be carved up for research, these kids will be on Capitol Hill today to illustrate that frozen embryos need not wind up drawn and quartered inside Petri dishes. Instead, they can be allowed to grow up into constituents.
It really says something about our society that people like this are hired to write for major media outlets and not placed in mental institutions.
Drawn and quartered?! Here is a visual simulation of this gruesome fate:
Normal, healthy embryo-American
Savagely dismembered embryo-American
Deroy also says:
Rather than see these young (potential) citizens torn to bits and splashed under microscopes, I would prefer to see this research prohibited.Keep this lunatic in mind when the Every Sperm Is Sacred brigade tries to convince you that they don't want to ban stem cell research, but that they just don't want it funded with their tax money.
